The summer wouldn’t be the same without the great MidasPlus Duck race. And it’s here for 2020 – just in virtual form!

We’ve also added a couple of other fun competitions to keep you entertained this summer

Midas Plus VIRTUAL Duck Race

Midasplus VIRTUAL Duck Race

With no Staines-upon-Thames Day this year and therefore no Duck Races, MidasPlus have decided to run a VIRTUAL DUCK RACE to raise funds so that they can continue to help people locally. The prize for the winner is a trip for 2 people to the top of the Shard to enjoy the view followed by a Three Course Meal for 2 at Marco Pierre White’s London Steakhouse Co.

The race will be held on ZOOM at 5pm on Friday 14th August. There will be a maximum of 100 ducks which can be reserved for a minimum of £5 each. To reserve your duck, to donate to MidasPlus or for more information please go to the website.
